“Whatsoever Ye Would That Men Should Do to You, Do Ye Even So to Them”

Ed J. Pinegar, Richard J. Allen

The law of relationships is based upon love, for love fulfills all the law and the prophets. That is the essence of the Golden Rule. “Someone said, ‘We have committed the Golden Rule to memory. May we now commit it to life.’ The Savior’s teaching, ‘Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them’ (Matthew 7:12) should be the basis for all human relationships” (David B. Haight, A Light unto the World [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1997], 163).
